If you have an accident, you may not be able to tell first responders all of the vital information they may need to know to save your life.
A new, relatively simple product may help.
Rescue Facts is a small pouch that attaches to a seatbelt and when opened contains all of the medical information that can help their life-saving efforts.
A statement from the company says, “Because removing a victim’s seat belt is the first step in tending to the victim, first responders are able to have vital information at their fingertips – in an easy-to-find place. At a glance, they have a snapshot of the victim’s identification, contact information, medical history (condition, prescriptions, allergies and blood type), primary care physician and preferred hospital. A consent-to-treat form also is included.”
Rescue Facts can also attach to helmet straps for equestrians, motorcycle, bicycle and ATV riders. A smaller version can fit on a child’s car seat or backpack.
They also can be attached to a pet’s collar.
